Origin Wireless™ Inc. ("Origin") and nami.ai Pte. Ltd. ("nami") today announced the launch of their 'now' initiative (nami origin wi-fi sensing). The now platform brings together two industry leaders to offer companies and brands an all-in-one solution, combining AI, software and hardware to deploy intelligent Wi-Fi sensing to their customers.
Being a cost-efficient, turnkey solution, the now platform speeds up the time to market for IoT providers, ISPs, PropTech, InsurTech, HealthTech and EnergyTech. Incorporating the now AIoT platform (AI + IoT) enables even the smallest smart device to become a sensor to differentiate between human beings, robot vacuums, pets, fans and more.
Today we unveil the official name and architecture of the companies' first joint effort since announcing their partnership last month. Origin is the leader in WiFi Sensing – developing applications for home automation, home security, fall detection and more. nami is an innovator which challenges and overcomes the limits of what's possible in IoT.
"nami's impressive AIoT infrastructure, encompassing firmware, cloud, API and UI/UX layers, is invaluable to the now platform with digital monitoring powered by Origin's advanced AI wireless sensing technology," said Dr. Ray Liu, Founder and CEO of Origin. "We are pleased to bring our joint solution to the market and look forward to its early applications and future success."
"We are excited to contribute to elevate an industry from the Internet of Things to the Intelligence of Things. Non-line-of-sight monitoring technology allows us to fully respect people's privacy, while bringing unprecedented levels of granularity in digital sensing. With the now initiative, we have built a middleware platform guaranteeing privacy from back-end to front-end. Together with Origin, we are creating solutions around both B2C and B2B use-cases – relevant for security, energy efficiency, building automation and health – to help innovative players smoothly incorporate Wi-Fi sensing disruption to their value propositions."
Jean-Eudes Leroy, CEO of nami
